I'm going to guess that in 1967 and throughout the seventies, the photos which Graflex took would be seen as porn. As times have moved on so opinions change and now it has become glamour.
It's a fact that photos dating to this era where of better erotic quality as at least somethings were left to the imagination. Now, unless every private part is on show the photo set won't sell.
The difference is that the buyers of such magazines have become bored with "arty" shots of undressed ladies and now want to see more explicit shots.
It's pushing the boundries of what most people would see as decent.
The UK still has a Victorian attitude towards anything sexual or sensual. On the whole as a nation we are easily shocked and offended.
Perhaps the difference between art and porn is what is left to the imagination.

I would have to say that some people out there would say there is no difference at all. I use to be one of those. Until I started to take pictures and looked at the world through the lens of a camera. Nudes can be very exciting and mysterious at the same time. You can tell diffenent emotions and feelings with nothing to hide. A chance to show the world how you feel, about life and yourself. I think it can be very wonderful if done right.
